• Homework/Grading Policy 
    Student grades are based on a preponderance of the evidence (classwork, homework, formatives, and post-assessments). All assignments must be academically based and are scored using common scoring guides. No extra credit will be given. If the standard has not been mastered, students will be given the opportunity to reassess. Academic dishonesty will not be tolerated.
    Late Work Policy 
    In order to be part of the final grade, all missing work must be turned in at least two days prior to the unit post-assessment.
    The Sixth Grade-Level Standards outline what students should know and be able to do by the end of the school year. As students progress through the year, teachers are looking for student growth towards meeting the expectations of standards.

    ● For each standard, teachers administer a pre-test. After the pre-test, teachers provide instruction that supports the standard.

    ● There will be guided and independent activities. Teachers provide activities/observations that will be scored and entered in the grade book. These
    activities/observations common formative assessments that show the student’s progress towards meeting the standard.

    ● Following the unit of instruction, a post-test will be administered.

    ● Students who have not attained proficiency will continue to receive additional instruction tied to the standard so that the student can continue to work towards meeting the proficiency standards by the end of the year. 

    ● The cycle of administering the pre-test, conducting activities/observations, and administering the post-test may happen within a quarter or may be spread out over multiple quarters. 

    ● At grade card time, students will be marked based on where the student currently is with respect to the expectations of the standa
